S1E5: Man vs woman, or is it woman vs woman? - Work Talk

  • 23 May 2022

Synopsis: Every first and third Monday of the month, get our tips on working smarter, getting ahead in your career and investing like a pro with ST's business correspondents and editors. They say the ones pitching against women at workplaces aren't men, but women who have crossed the bridge of success and decided to blow it up. Do such women exist and why? What are working women up against at the workplaces, and how should they navigate them? How do men feel about being the apex body that just cannot seem to win?   In this episode, ST's senior correspondent Krist Boo hosts Professor Chong Sin Hui, assistant professor of organisational behaviour from Nanyang Technological University, and Mr Toh Keng Hoe - a corporate executive, a part-time lecturer, a Singapore Computer Society volunteer, and most pertinently... a man.
